Exploring World Geography (Pack) [HC]
Out of stock
Exploring World Geography from Notgrass History is a one-year high school course that describes and explains the world God created. Students will learn about mankind’s interaction with the world both in the past and in the present. The curriculum addresses two main questions: How has the physical world made a difference in what people have done, how they have lived, and how they live today? How have people made a difference in the physical world, and how are they making a difference in it today?
Your high school student will gain a rich understanding of physical and human geography through reading the narrative lessons, studying the maps and completing map assignments, reading literature about people and places around the world, completing writing assignments and hands-on projects, and gaining a Biblical perspective on world religions and culture.
The Exploring World Geography Curriculum Package includes three books:
- Exploring World Geography Part 1 (first semester)
- Exploring World Geography Part 1 (second semester)
- Exploring World Geography Gazetteer (maps and assigned readings)
Exploring World Geography Part 1 and Part 2 include a total of 150 lessons. Each lesson includes the text for the student to read and the specific assignments for that day. The Exploring World Geography Gazetteer includes an atlas of world regions and countries plus a collection of readings that highlight different parts of the world.
Exploring World Geography is designed to be easy-to-use for parent and student. Each of the 30 weekly units has an introduction that features a summary of the material covered, a list of lessons, Bible memory work, books required for that unit, and suggested writing assignments and hands-on projects. Each of the 150 daily lessons (five lessons per week) includes a list of specific assignments for that day. A focused student can direct his own study, and the parent can offer as much interaction as needed.
Completing the full course provides your child with one year of high school credit in three subjects: World Geography, English, and Bible. Depending on how fast your child reads and how much time he spends on the unit projects, he may need an average of 2-3 hours for each daily lesson.
